  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes see note
  • 2 tsps sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional

  • Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat.  Add the garlic and sauté just until it becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  • Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook on low for about 15 minutes or until the sauce is thickens, stirring intermittently.



The diced tomatoes make for a nice chunky sauce.  If your family doesn't dig on chunks, replace the diced tomatoes with a second can of crushed tomatoes.
